World of Warcraft: Hacker Massacre

Players of World of Warcraft may have been part of a virtual epidemic yesterday when a group of hackers hacked the game and exploited a way to kill all NPC and playable characters in the game’s major cities, resulting in confusion and panic within the game.

This is not the first time hackers have managed to hack the game, it’s also believed that this is not the first time the same group of hackers have targeted World of Warcraft.

Blizzard, the developers of the 10 million strong subscriber multiplayer game, has assured players that the problem has been hot-fixed and no more virtual deaths will occur.

The game itself is doing great, whilst the dip from 12 million subscribers to almost 9 million by the beginning of 2012 was a loss, the release of the latest expansion “Mists of Pandaria” has sparked an increase in subscribers, bumping up the numbers to 10 million once more.

However, there is no doubt that a notable quantity of these subscribers are people with two accounts paying for the “Recruit a Friend” benefits for leveling. It’s a scenario that is likely with the release of a new expansion with a new playable class and race.

How it exactly happened is unclear, but the desecration of the city grounds is proof of what happened. Blizzard has stated online that they are taking it “very seriously”.

Hopefully this is the last anyone will see of these hackers, so to continue enjoying the many wonders of  the World of Warcraft.
